Ranikhet, home to the Kumaon Regiment and bustling with good
old-fashioned military atmosphere, spreads over lush green hills with some
stunning views over the distant Himalaya. The focus of the town is a busy
bazaar area, but you don’t have to walk far along the narrow Mall Rd to bask in
the forest and tall English trees.
Apart from a military museum, some peaceful
walks and views of snow-capped peaks, there’s not much to do in Ranikhet – it’s
much more of a holiday destination than some other hill stations. This hill
station is mostly preferred by travelers rather than tourists. Ranikhet is,
